Graduated from University of Southern California, Film School (BA) Graduated from American Film Institute, Director's Program (MBA).
Grew up in Pasadena, CA and still lives there.
His career appeared to come to a screeching halt, following controversies surrounding the 2011 film "Midnight Rider," a Greg Allman biopic that was to star William Hurt. The death of camera operator Sarah Jones occurred, allegedly as a result of decisions made by the director, while conducting unauthorized filming on an active train track. The furor resulting from this accident, including outcries against the director from Hurt, Allman, the film industry, and the public, brought the film to a complete halt. The incident was likened, in the "Complete Crimes" documentary, to the John Landis incident, during direction of "The Twilight Zone Movie," where several actors were killed under similar conditions. Landis was charged and cleared in criminal court, however Miller was not. As of 2016, Miller has not been scheduled to oversee any other movie production.
